Observations on the repair of distal radial osteotomies in the dog by double hook plates
Peer reviewed

Abstract

Distal radial osteotomies in the dog repaired with a double hook plate achieved early return to full function. All dogs in this study reached and maintained the desired clinical evaluation score of grade four by the third postoperative week. The average loss of total range of carpal joint motion was 36 degrees. The double hook plate provides stable fixation and can be applied with three point fixation to a bone segment as short as 12 mm.
